Not the greatest audience recording but it sounds like a hell of a show.

I wonder which reel is missing the from the soundboards that are allegedly in the vault (I'm going to guess it's the last reel, the first reel, or the reel with the He's Gone ->Other One->Stella Blue)?

This was near the last tour with the NRPS opening for the boys. Excellent He's Gone>Other One>Stella Blue. Saw a lot of shows around then,and before then. This was the only time I know of that the Riders performed Death & Destruction. Yeah they started to do in the 90's but back in the 70's only time.

i saw the riders perform that at cw post college a couple of months later. it was a rarity for sure.

That is a pretty good He's Gone jam, and the other one is standard for the times, which means pretty fucking awesome. I asked archivist David L. about the board for this show and he responded...

"I suppose because it was never leaked from the vault. There is a board tape, as good as the rest of them from that tour, although it is missing one reel. I think we have 5 reels from this 6 reel show.

Great sets. . . blue for the Riders, red for the Dead. Mind over matter swami between sets. On a bed of nails with cindar blocks piled on his chest Left J.C. headed straight for Waterbury then back to J.C.

Okay, so you don't like my taping skills? LOL
It's too bad a better sounding tape hasn't surfaced over all these years because this show actually has some extraordinary highlights. It has (IMO) the single best He's Gone jam ->Other One segueway ever. Also, the Halfstep is possibly my personal favorite. But the He's Gone jam ... jeez! How can you overlook this? It's a simply wonderful example of Dead improvisation... a beautiful 'little' jam, never matched in all the versions I've heard. Yes, the weather was miserable and caused two breaks. But the band was playing very well, comparing very favorably with other shows around this time.

1972, in my opinion, and many others, may have been the most consistently amazing year for the boys. Looking back, I really regret having only seen one show that year as I hadn't yet started doing the touring thing - started that in 1973.

This, unfortunately, was the one show I saw in 1972. The weather was miserable, chilly and damp. There were sound and equipment problems that forced the band to take a few mini breaks. The performance, in a year of so many monumental shows, was inconsistent at best.

Listening to recordings of the many great '72 shows is a real treat, so at least I always have that.

Rockin Dead!

My second favorite Bird Song (Veneta is the best), is unfortunately on a poor quality tape. The tapers (Jerry Moore, I think), conserved tape by cutting into every song, and so missing a few notes of each.

The quality is good for an old, outside aud, but that ain't saying much. Great versions of GSET, Railroad, Jed and an early Half Step, make this one a keeper.
